We are committed to giving you transparency of our privacy practices and control over your data.
You may also email us with any privacy-related questions you have at team@IMGuest.com
The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users and hotels through the Service. In connection with the Service, we request and display some personal Information to other users and visitors of the Service, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our users.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, email address, phone number, birthday, business information, education, use information and browser information. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users and hotels, improving the content of the Service, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also draw upon this Personal Information in order to adapt the services of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for the community.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from IMGuest if your computer supports this type of program. IMGuest uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate your preference during the registration process or by making a modification on your account settings page or through the ‘settings’ tab on our website once you’re logged into the service.
Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business and service. IMGuest may share your Personal Information only as described below.
Use of the Service: The Service is primarily designed to help you share information, including your hotel, with others. This not only includes the information that you provide directly to IMGuest, but also information that you broadcast to third party services using the Service. You can control your information through your privacy settings accessible through the ‘settings’ tab on our website once you’re logged into the Service.
Information you submit to the Service will be available to users of the Service in accordance with the selected privacy settings. Your name and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Service network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your others can find you and interact with you due to a business matter. People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access all of your information. That allows such access based on your privacy settings.
Please remember that if you choose to provide personal information using certain features of the Service, that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and, unless selected otherwise, may be available to the wider IMGuest community or may be published on the IMGuest website, which is subject to indexing by third party search engines. Individuals reading this information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. Therefore, we urge you to think carefully about including any specific information.
Hotels We Do Not Control: We enter into relationships with a variety of hotels and work closely with them. In certain situations, these hotels sell items or provide promotions to you through IMGuest's Service. In other situations, IMGuest provides services, or sells products jointly with these hotels. You can easily recognize when one of these hotels is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that business, unless you have elected not to be solicited by marketing partners during the registration process or through the account settings page.
User profiles: User profile information including user name, Twitter account name, Facebook account name, and other information you enter may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Service. Users’ email addresses and phone numbers will not be directly revealed to other users by IMGuest, except when the user chooses to email them from within the Service or chooses to display their email address and phone number on their profile page through the privacy settings.
Communication in response to User Submissions: IMGuest will use your email to send you updates on when your facebook and twitter friends check-in and a IMGuest newsletter – however, you can opt out of all of these communications on your account settings page.
Promotional Offers: As part of the Service you may be exposed to offers from IMGuest on behalf of other businesses and hotels.
Invitations: When you invite someone to join the IMGuest community, please be aware that we will disclose your real name, as an invitation containing your name will be sent to the email address of the person you wish to invite. This information is necessary to make sure your invitee knows who has contacted them. To build a community based on trust and empathy, we feel this disclosure is necessary.
Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if IMGuest, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that IMGuest goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of IMGuest may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Protection of IMGuest and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of IMGuest, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: For clarity, we may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as the number of users who checked in at a particular hotels.
